As some of you knew, I had an 8 strings guitar under construction since 2 1/2 years ago. Now, I have it on my hands already finish and tested!!! And I alread record the backing track for the "Meshuggah Style Collab" with this guitar. So, no more words, let's go to what matters

My dog still admires it as me!!


It has a dragon sculpted with the middle of it in the 12th fret


Here you can see the bridge, made specially by the luthier for this guitar


Here's with my other babes


In the studio, during the bass recording session of Thabu's new Ep


And some live pics




And of course, it will be a lesson with this guitar soon, so, stay tuned!!

If you want to listen more material with it, you can check out a new Thabu song on the band's myspace www.myspace.com/thabuspace

Wow. AMAZING. Just Killer! The inlay on the fret board is a a great touch. I play a 7 string Ibanez and have wanted to try an 8. I'd love to contribute to the Meshegga collaboration too!

I understand the symbolism. But aside, the Octopus (and close relatives Cuttlefish and Squid) are among the most intelligent animals. Quite large brains.

Thank you so much guys, I'm really glad you liked it. For the question that Zakk and Jstcrsn, it is tuned F#, B, E, A, D, G, B, E. Those Emg's give me real power on the F# string!!
